Hadn't even heard about this one. Apparently back in 1999 a couple got a little angry when SFA told them that their 4 year old son was too short to ride TSC. So in protest, when the boat got back to the station, they refused to get out for a good ten minutes after which they were escorted out by security in handcuffs. Apparently they thought it was racial discrimination and tried to sue the park for $2.5 million, but SFA won the case and...well...you can read the rest...

So ridiculous. IMO, the courts made the correct decision.

And if I was in charge at SFA, I'd have done the same thing- bring out security to take care of them. Thats just shameful behavior.
